Kiwanis Clubs, Granite Hills High come through for veterans

By Staff Reports

(Victor Valley)– In response to a recent article in Supervisor Lovingood’s e-newsletter, the Kiwanis Club of Apple Valley and the Kiwanis Club of Victorville joined efforts and purchased 50 new sets of headphones for residents of the Barstow Veterans Home.

“Local residents including myself, have been very supportive of keeping the Veteran’s Home open to give the people that served our country a place to call home and receive the care they need and deserve,” stated Apple Valley Kiwanis board member, Beverly Williams. “When I asked what the greatest need was for the veterans in the home, I was informed that headphones would be highest on the list for most.”

Granite Hills High School Key Club students, a high school community service club supported by Kiwanis, also wrote cards of gratitude to the veteran residents and to the donation recipients, which were presented with the delivery of headphones.

If you would like to help support the veterans at the Barstow Veterans Home or receive a list of items needed for the resident veterans, please call (760) 252-6200 or email PAO.barstow@calvet.ca.gov. If you would like to learn more about Kiwanis, please visit www.Kiwanis.org.
